Ready for an intense road trip that involves delicious food, fierce competition and most likely a little bit of drama? If so you are in luck because Food Network is already underway shooting the second season of its smash-hit primetime series The Great Food Truck Race with host Chef Tyler Florence. While Food Network has confirmed no details, some of the contestants have been spotted out-and-about, providing us with a sneak-peek of what’s in store for season two.
During the second season of The Great Food Truck Race, eight diverse and celebrated food trucks from all regions of the country will hit-the-road and embark on a coast-to-coast culinary road trip. These trucks will pass through numerous cities, including: Santa Monica, Calif, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, Manhattan, Memphis, Atlanta and Miami.
Each week, the trucks will roll into a new city, set-up-shop and compete in unique challenges. Of course these won’t be any ordinary challenges – competitors will often be battling tough conditions, such as weather problems, location mishaps, food sourcing issues, and ever-changing customer taste buds, according to Eater. In the end, what it all comes down to is which truck can sell the most food and make it to the next episode, while the losing truck is sent home. Throughout the season guest judges will join host Tyler Florence and the last truck standing at the end of the journey will win $100,000.

About half of the trucks are from California, including San Diego’s very own Devilicious, Irvine’s The Lime Truck, and Café Con Leche from Van Nuys.
The rest of the contestants include: Hodge Podge from Cleveland, Ohio, Korilla Barbecue from New York, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese from Boston, and Chow Truck from Salt Lake City. The second season of The Great Food Truck Race is set to premiere on August 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Food Network.
